2012 was a really successful year for our Level 3 students. Aswell as some significant commissions that came off the back of the Trip to New York, a number were successful in some of the major competitions. Notable were four students who were chosen to exhibit in the Serco London Transport Poster exhibition that was held at the London Transport Museum. Finn Clark who graduated in 2012 was the overall winner. His winning poster can been seen at Tube stations all over the underground. Well done to Elena Boils and Oliver Kellett who also were part of the exhibition.
More news regarding our most recent graduates include Jim Boswell being commissioned to produce illustrations for the Folio Society. James also had success at D&AD New Blood: Best in Year – D&AD 2012 Illustration – Little White Lies.
Charlotte Trounce, who graduated in 2011, along with Linda Scott have both just recently been commissioned and subsequently published in the Dutch edition of Jamie magazine. Charlotte also had success in the London Transport poster competition in 2011 when came third.
The illustrator Mark Smith recently visited the course and presented his work to all 3 years. Mark was due to speak at our London illustration forum but had to pull out at the last minute, so we are very grateful to him for coming down to Falmouth to speak.
On the subject of Visiting Lecturers Levels 2 & 3 will be able to benefit from an event that our Learning Futures department have organised for Tuesday 5th February. For Level 3 students there will be the opportunity to attend a series of presentations on the subject of Business Skills. This is part of our Professional Practice delivery. Themes will include ‘Business Start Up’, ‘Tax Issues’, and ‘Intellectual Property Rights’. In the afternoon 3 ex graduates from Illustration (Owen Davey, Emma Dibben, Robert Fresson) will be talking to Level 3 students about how they have built their careers. Two of these ex graduates will also be giving talks to Level 2 students in the morning regarding their working practices.
